TL;DR: This paper discuss three communicative acts: an ephemeral artwork InMemory, a narrative "The art of being lost" and a paper "Ephemeral art: Mourning and loss".
Abstract: In this paper I will discuss three communicative acts: an ephemeral artwork InMemory; a narrative ‘The art of being lost’; and a paper ‘Ephemeral Art: Mourning and Loss’. These were presented, respectively, at the Salina Art Centre, Kansas; Emotional Geography Conference, Queens University, Kingston, Ontario; and (Im)permanence: Cultures In/Out of Time at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh. These pieces deal with the same subject, but are presented in different modes reflecting the requirements of different sites – a gallery, a conference, and a book. All three aspired to creativity as well as rigour, to articulate intuitive as well as empirical knowledge. I will discuss these works in terms of site specificity and integrated practice, rather than opposite poles of a creative spectrum, which places text at one end and image at the other. I will demonstrate how each mode has informed the other and how each has benefited from the particular requirement imposed by the ‘site’. The site here is not just the physical location but includes the anticipated audience, the environment, and the atmosphere. The works are interactive and are akin to the concept in communication analysis of ‘recipient design’. I hope this case study may be useful in providing an alternative to viewing writing in art and design as inherently problematic. Instead, I offer an analysis of a multifaceted practice in which the ‘I’ is always present, implicitly or explicitly.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors explore the potential of narrative in science education and explore the question: What is narrative and why might it be of value to science education? In answering this question, they propose a view of narrative and its necessary components, which permits narrative a role in Science education, and is, in fact, the main contribution of this paper.
Abstract: The present theoretical paper presents a case for the use of narrative (i.e., fictional written text) in science education as a way of making science meaningful, relevant, and accessible to the public. Grounded in literature pointing to the value of narrative in supporting learning and the need to explore new modes of communicating science, this paper explores the potential of narrative in science education. More specifically, in this paper we explore the question: What is narrative and why might it be of value to science education? In answering this question we propose a view of narrative and its necessary components, which permits narrative a role in science education, and is, in fact, the main contribution of this paper. Also, a range of examples of narrative text are offered in the paper to make the case for a representation of fictional narrative in science. In order to address questions connected with the use of narrative in science education, a research agenda based on perspectives of narrative imp...

TL;DR: This paper explored the potential of social network site Twitter as a site for audience research and argued that Twitter provides a potentially significant development in our understanding of audiences and their relationship with media, both old and new.
Abstract: This paper aims to explore the potential of social network site Twitter as a site for audience research. Drawing on notions of ‘liveness’, participation, convergence and interactivity, it argues that Twitter provides a potentially significant development in our understanding of audiences and their relationship with media, both ‘old’ and ‘new’. The study looks at examples of Twitter users engaging with (and in some cases creating) the news and discussing television programmes. The author’s own experiences of using Twitter in audience research provide a case study suggesting possible directions for future research using this medium.
